If it seems to you that every company in the market has an all in one liquid cooling offering you’re not alone. But this isn’t a bad thing. It just means there is more competition and competition drives innovation. Today we’ll be taking a look at one result of this competition, the slightly more evolved offering of AIO cooling from Enermax, the Liqtech 120X. At the top of their liquid cooling offerings the 120X is everything they can throw a hot CPU. Follow along as we take a closer look at this refined AIO and see how it compares to others.
Special thanks to Enermax for providing the Liqtech 120X for review!

The 120X comes as usual in a standard flip top cardboard box. The front of the box has some nice graphics featuring a photo of the unit, a claim of 300W+ of cooling capacity and a brief listing of features. Most of these are related to the fans. You will also find a brief listing of the compatibility of the unit. Moving to the back of the box you will find the full listing of features and specifications. Additionally Enermax has included diagrams with dimensions and some photos showing of some key features. Finally on the left side panel with a red background you will find simple statements of features in several languages.
Moving on we flip open the lid and find the manual and a ½” thick sheet of foam. Removing the foam and lying beneath in an egg carton like cradle is the cooler, fans, and accessories. All in all the packaging is completely standard and should be sufficient to protect the unit during shipping.
